With the continuous improvement of people’s living standards, the attention paid to the safety standards of products and supporting products is gradually increasing, and silicone hose have become one of the indispensable supporting products for industry, food, medical treatment, and biopharmaceuticals. Silicone tubes for feeding bottles used by children in daily life, connecting tubes for food and medical fields, as well as connecting tubes for industrial machinery and equipment, and sheath tubes for industrial products; but how many people know the testing standards and application standards for silicone hose?

Braided Silicone Hose

The commonly used environmental standards for silicone hoses are divided into four grades

  1. RoHS testing (industrial grade silicone tube): 6 items, namely lead (Pb), cadmium (Cd), mercury (Hg), hexavalent chromium (Cr6+), polybrominated biphenyls (PBBs) and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs). From now on, it will be updated to 2011/65/EC, and the restricted substances will be increased to 10 items, that is, di-n-butyl phthalate (DBP), n-butyl benzyl phthalate (BBP), and phthalates will be added. (2-Hexyl)hexyl formate (DEHP), Hexabromocyclododecane (HBCDD). Industrial-grade silicone tubes are widely used in essential supporting products such as industrial machinery, equipment, electronics, toys, and electrical appliances.
  2. FDA test (food silicone tube) US food and drug standard normal test: test according to the chapter standard of 21CFR177.2600 of the US Food and Drug Administration regulations. Food silicone tube is widely used in the production process of food, beverage, drinking water, etc. to play the role of transportation connection.
  3. LFGB test (food-grade silicone tube) German food and daily necessities standard normal test: sensory test, total migration, volatile organic compounds, peroxide residue, organotin, food-grade silicone tube The most widely used in China is the baby bottle Silicone tubes, due to the relatively low resistance of newborns and infants who are too young, LFGB standard food-grade silicone tube products are one of the most suitable products, and LFGB food-grade silicone tube standards are also the most requested standards for exporting to European and American customers one.
  4. Biocompatibility report (medical silicone tube) standard routine test five items: 1 cell, 2 sensitization, 3 skin irritation, 4 toxicity, 5 hemolysis of blood compatibility. Medical silicone tubes are widely used in medical machinery, medical instruments, medical equipment, biopharmaceuticals and other necessary supporting products for transportation and connection.
